7 p.m. 49A02-1206-PL-512. Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law. Edmund W. Martin was employed by the Indiana Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders Association in 2010. In November 2010, the Executive Director of the Indiana Horse Racing Commission issued an exclusion notice to Martin prohibiting him from entering any Indiana racing facilities until he obtained a license under Indiana Code section 4-31-61. Martin objected to the notice and administrative proceedings ensued. The administrative law judge determined that Martin was a participant in racing and was required to be licensed. On administrative appeal of the decision, the IHRC affirmed and adopted the ALJ's decision. Martin appealed the administrative order to the Marion Superior Court, and the parties filed motions for summary judgment. The trial court set aside and vacated the IHRC's order requiring Martin to be licensed. The IHRC now appeals.

  1. I was looking through some of your blog posts on this internet site and I conceive this web site is rattling informative ! Keep on posting . dfkcfdkdgbekdffe

  2. Don't believe me, listen to Pacino: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z6bC9w9cH-M

  3. Law school is social control the goal to produce a social product. As such it began after the Revolution and has nearly ruined us to this day: "“Scarcely any political question arises in the United States which is not resolved, sooner or later, into a judicial question. Hence all parties are obliged to borrow, in their daily controversies, the ideas, and even the language, peculiar to judicial proceedings. As most public men [i.e., politicians] are, or have been, legal practitioners, they introduce the customs and technicalities of their profession into the management of public affairs. The jury extends this habitude to all classes. The language of the law thus becomes, in some measure, a vulgar tongue; the spirit of the law, which is produced in the schools and courts of justice, gradually penetrates beyond their walls into the bosom of society, where it descends to the lowest classes, so that at last the whole people contract the habits and the tastes of the judicial magistrate.” ? Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America

  4. Attorney? Really? Or is it former attorney? Status with the Ind St Ct? Status with federal court, with SCOTUS? This is a legal newspaper, or should I look elsewhere?

  5. Once again Indiana has not only shown what little respect it has for animals, but how little respect it has for the welfare of the citizens of the state. Dumping manure in a pond will most certainly pollute the environment and ground water. Who thought of this spiffy plan? No doubt the livestock industry. So all the citizens of Indiana have to suffer pollution for the gain of a few livestock producers who are only concerned about their own profits at the expense of everyone else who lives in this State. Shame on the Environmental Rules Board!
